Naomi Watts would love to have a third child if she could guarantee it’d be a girl. The actress, who is raising two sons with longtime partner Liev Schreiber, can’t help but imagine what’d be like to have a daughter.
“Two boys can be a lot to handle and sometimes…you think it would be easier with two girls playing with their tea sets and dolls,” Naomi Watts recently told Britain’s OK! magazine. “But Liev loves having two boys and I suppose I might consider having another child if someone could guarantee me it would be a girl.”
Though she hasn’t actually been pregnant since 2008, Naomi has been sporting quite the belly lately. Check out a photo of the 44-year-old star on the set of St. Vincent de Van Nuys from earlier this month:
“The hardest part was getting back in shape after my first boy was born,” Naomi Watts went on to share, recalling her real-life pregnancy and post-baby experiences. “I gained 45lb and it was a struggled to get back to my previous weight and shape. I used to do a lot of Pilates and other kinds of high-tech exercise routines to keep in good form but now I play a lot of tennis.”
“I still feel very ambitious and you always want to find the next great project,” she added of her career. “But it’s a very different feeling now than when I was struggling to get parts. Now I have a wonderful man and children to come home to, and waking up in the morning with my family is one of the greatest joys you can ever have in life.”
As a mom of only boys, just as Naomi Watts is, I feel like I should be able to relate to her hopes for a daughter, but I can’t. My family feels complete with just the four of us, and I have no longing for another child regardless of what sex it would end up being.
I have a friend who has two boys though, and would have a third in a heartbeat if she could be guaranteed a girl, and know another mom who decided to just keep having babies until she got one. Fourth try was the charm!
